City at Sea

It has been reported that the Honduran Government approved the construction of a luxury ship that will sail the world with thousands of residents onboard. The project is valued at $8.5 billion and will be undertaken by the Freedom Ship International, Miami based company in the Bay of Trujillo on Honduras's Atlantic Coast. The ship will continuously circle the globe, covering most of the world's coastal regions. It will be a mobile modern city featuring luxurious living, a major world trade center, and an extensive duty-free international shopping mall. It is not a cruise ship, but a unique place to live, work, retire, vacation, or visit.

With a length of 4,320 feet, a width of 725 feet, and a height of 340 feet, Freedom Ship will be the first of this kind in the world. The ship's driving power will be provided by 100 pod propulsors, 3,000 HP each, which will rotate 360 degrees giving the ship the ability to move in any direction, without the use of a rudder.

Its large fleet of commuter aircraft and hydrofoils will ferry residents and visitors to and from shore. The airport on the ship's top deck will serve private and small commercial aircraft (up to about 40 passengers). The vessel's superstructure, rising twenty-five stories above its broad main deck, will house residential space, a library, schools, and a first-class hospital in addition to retail and wholesale shops, banks, hotels, restaurants, entertainment facilities, casinos, offices, warehouses, and light manufacturing and assembly enterprises.
